Sunday Sketches

The sun has faded into the night and the moon has replaced it, shining bright enough to pave a path for those walking in the cool Autumnal air.  Another week has passed with orders completed, parcels shipped and new little illustrations, such as this one, coming to life.  There are still many projects on the table, including 4 children's books, a nursery rhyme series and custom hand-painted 2015 yearly calendars.  When my bad car accident happened almost 5 months ago now,  I would've never imagined my creative life unfolding the way it is today.  Unfortunate as it was, somehow, it's brought about greater things and joy to my life and I couldn't be happier. ♥

I'm looking forward to catching up with everyone.  This is a special creative world for me here, with each of you in it.  So blessed to have you and the opportunity to share my journey with you along the way.  (Holds up her cuppa in a special toast.)
